pattern: one lump or 2?


My mom likes to tell about how my great grandmother (who I'm named after!) used to hold a sugar cube in her mouth and sip her coffee through it. I'm not one for adding sugar to either my coffee or tea, so I've never tried it, but I like the idea.

Even though I can't think of the last time that I used a sugar cube, I find them ever so charming. They feel like something from another time...something special. I suppose that's a lot to get from a sugar cube. Anyway, I rather like the phrase "one lump or 2?" and especially coming from this sugar cube in particular.

I'd also like to point out that if the "refinery" of sugar cubes and tea parties isn't really your thing, this is still the pattern for you! Just turn the smile upside down, and suddenly you have a much more threatening sweet! Although, I suppose getting beaten up by this little guy would still be a happy occurrence...

Either way, I hope you enjoy stitching up this little guy. Now, would you like one lump or two?

  8. My comment is a bit late, but I think sugar cubes are quite nostalgic also :) There is just something ethereal about them.
